Chris has been great with English tutoring for my very shy 6th grader. He is able to engage her via online (due to COVID) with reading and writing assignments and book discussions. He is very flexible and patient and works with our schedule and time constraints!

Chris was very accommodating to the last minute changes I had and I truly appreciated it. On his first tutor lesson alone for my son, he was able to engage him in a way I struggled to get him to think outside the box. My son was able to understand clearly what he needed to do and immediately put into writing the ideas that were flowing. I was amazed at how quick my son was able to grasp what he needed to do to complete his assignment. Looking forward to continuing to work with Chris as he provides his expertise in helping bring my son up to speed with his subjects.

Christopher is a wonderful teacher, he is so nice. My 10 grader and 7th grader both love working with him. We’ve only started working with him so I can’t give the results we’ve had yet! I will be back to give more when we are able to achieve our results. But so far so good.

Details: High school • General reading and writing • Reading comprehension • Essay writing / review • Creative writing • Intermediate • Learn new topics and techniques • As recommended by professional • 60 minutes • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc. • Remotely (phone or internet)

Chris was very knowledgeable about the material I needed help with and was also able to suggest many study habits and ways to improve studying and reading skills. He uses great examples to engage learning in the session and is very responsive in scheduling meeting times. I definitely recommend him for help!
